Re: [IPp] Delayed low after exercise

Our CDE told us to make sure Kaycee is at least 150 before doing physical
activity.  After the activity she told us to cut her basals in half for 2
hours.  This has seemed to work.  Kaycee is 9 plays basketbal, tennis and
softball.  We don't follow this protocol for softball because there doesn't
seem to be as much activity during that.  Good Luck Maryann Crawford
